How I Use It
The use of text boxes gives this a versatility to provide both images and information. In an ELA classroom, I like to use the boxes for textual evidence or as labels and the images for symbols. I also use this personally to tweet some of the awesome things going on in my classroom. Templates work well and students were able to figure out how to use the options without relying on me teaching them how to use the app.
My Take
It is good, but when the image is saved and then uploaded to Edmodo, it cuts off some of edge which in turns cuts off words. Definitely give it a test run to see if you need to warn kids to stay away from putting important things in the corners. When making collages students can either go surface level or deep depending more on the lesson and product requirements that the teacher creates.
